The Challenge

In early 2017, Mi día de Suerte started the project with the vision of competing at a great scale, intending to create a robust and flexible web and mobile platform. One of the main challenges was to generate a transactional architecture, with the flexibility to scale products and to take them to a next level. Integrating the payment engine and both services from Pronósticos para la Asistencia Pública and the national lottery was a major key fact.
AWS has been a cornerstone for many of the important points of this infrastructure to be created solved, working, like the redundancy of the VPN, a high availability scheme covering up the demand peaks.

The Benefits

Currently, CMillonario.com offers its users the chance to purchase tickets both at Pronosticos para la Asistencia Publica and the National Lottery.  It has a built-in payment engine using a registered card wallet, which makes the user’s experience even more fluid and intuitive.
Tools such as the load balancers with SSL, Cloudfront, S3 storage, AWS RDS, VPN with redundancy and auto-scaling, have delivered excellent support to each one of these aspects. The perspective of the administrated services is the answer that CMillonario.com needs as support in the technological areas.

The speed with which AWS adds relevant services supports the decision of having chosen it.
